Khaleda to face case of corruption as well as murder: Hasina

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said on Saturday her government was showing utmost patience to make BNP leader Khaleda Zia understand the consequences of her destructive politics and killing of innocent people.
She said Khaleda Zia is giving directives from her office to her party leaders across the country to continue the killing and petrol bomb attacks. Every miscreant behind the incidents of arson and petrol bomb attack belongs to BNP, Jamaat or their student and youth fronts, Sheikh Hasina said.“So it’s a matter of time when the BNP leader will face trial for those killings side by side punishment in the ongoing corruption cases,” Sheikh Hasina said while addressing a big rally at Suhrawardy Udyan here this afternoon.
Bangladesh Awami League organised the rally marking March 7 of 1971, when the historic public address by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman calling the people for waging all out struggle against the then military junta.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who presided over the rally as the president of Bangladesh Awami League, criticised the “so-called intellectuals who are reluctant to hold Khaleda Zia responsible for the current political violence”, saying, those who would try to protect the killers would be charged with aiding and abetting the killers and bomb attackers.
She said Bangladesh would certainly go ahead defying the bomb attacks and orchestrated conspiracy of BNP and anti-liberation forces and none would be able to deviate the nation from its cherished goal of development.
“We will not tolerate the continuation of the rampage. It’s a matter of time. Begum Zia will not only face the corruption charges, she will have to face charges of killings for giving directives,” the Prime Minister said.
Party’s Advisory Council member Amir Hossain Amu, Tofail Ahmed, presidium member Matia Chowdhury, Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, Mohammad Nasim, president of Dhaka City unit MA Aziz, general secretary Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya, joint secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif and Jahangir Kabir Nanak, addressed the rally, among others.
Sheikh Hasina said people of Bangladesh have lost seven years from their life without any development during the regime of BNP and caretaker government. They started dreaming of their prosperous future after Awami League assumed power in 2009.
“People have been living in peace since 2009. They voted Awami League to power again in 2014 with mandate to carry forward the unfinished development works. But Khaleda Zia cannot accept the progress of the nation and this led her to choose a destructive path,” she said.
Sheikh Hasina said people know those persons who are hurling petrol bombs. Many of BNP-Jammat workers were blown off while manufacturing those deadly bombs. But a section of intellectuals never see this, she said urging party workers to identify those elements and forge strong resistance against the militants and terrorists in all areas along with the common people.
She accused Begum Zia of pursuing politics of bluff, cheating and falsehood. “She is constantly hatching conspiracy against democracy to capture power through back door. They also had put gun on me after grisly grenade attack on me on August 21, 2004 saying that I carried the grenades in my purse. BNP’s repeated falsehood tarnished country’s image abroad.” – BSS
